Fractures common in type 1 diabetes

July 29, 2015

Increased risk for fracture, beginning in childhood and extending through life, is associated with type 1 diabetes, according to recent study findings published in Diabetes Care.

David R. Weber, MD, MS, of Golisano Children’s Hospital, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, and colleagues from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia evaluated data from The Health Improvement Network (THIN) on 30,394 participants aged 0 to 89 years with type 1 diabetes and 303,872 randomly selected age-, sex- and practice-matched participants without diabetes (controls) to determine the effect of type 1 diabetes on the risk for fracture.
